    3 Kids now have attended RockSchool grading up to level 7. Great book series for preparation/exams. Be careful to buy only the right book for the year/series of test you are taking.

    Brilliant book based on working towards rockschool exams. It also comes with a CD which is brillian as it allows the student to play along to the backing track, thus making sure they are keeping correct time etc.

    Great product, for one of my son's, who is learning to play an electric guitar and studying for Rockschool exams. I bought from Amazon as I would have to travel at least 50 miles to the nearest stockist for this book. Amazon is perfect for me.
